|You'll Be A Hero Soon, Speaker - Ten and Tracer|
We set off into this new decade with a release written nearly a decade prior. Ten and Tracer's "You'll be a Hero Soon, Speaker" comprises the rediscovered songs from an earlier version of his album, "Companion". Jonathan Canupp, the fellow behind the name Ten and Tracer, gives us these previously thought-to-be-lost songs as the album "You'll be a Hero Soon, Speaker".

|Mirror - Gemini Tri|
*Mirror*, by Russian artist Gemini Tri, is a collection of beautiful melancholic songs that explore the irrevocable separation of past from present, and the continued struggles of existence.
